Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Railway Corporation (VNR) will ink a deal with the ​Saigon Newport Corporation this April to build two inland container depots (ICDs) in southern Binh Duong province and Hanoi.

New VNR Chairman Vu Anh Minh said the two ICDs will be constructed in Song Than Industrial Park in Binh Duong and in Dong Anh district, Hanoi.

Saigon Newport is a military-run company which accounts for half of the country’s market share of container shipping services, he noted, adding that it has also gained big proportions of the container market share, 90 percent and 70 percent, in Ho Chi Minh City and Ba Ria - Vung Tau province, respectively.

The VNR will also sign an agreement with the Vietnam Tourism Association and Nha Trang business association in Khanh Hoa to increase the number of rail passengers.-VNA
